A Guide to Milled Timber with Matt Cremona and April Wilkerson


As your woodworking journey progresses, most people shift from using highly stable man made board for their projects; to more decorative and satisfying to work with natural timbers.

Understanding the grain direction in a board makes a huge difference to both the structural properties of your projects and how they will look when finished. You also need to figure out how the board may move over time, given that natural timber never really stops reacting to the environment it’s in.

Triton Brand Champion Matt Cremona talks to April Wilkerson about the terms associated with milled timber, and how to take account of the properties it can exhibit over time.
